Samsung To Launch App Store

Samsung said it will launch a mobile applications store for Symbian and Windows Mobile devices during this month's Mobile World Congress.
Originally announced late last year, the online storefront will offer developers a streamlined portal to reach millions of Samsung handsets.
Similar to Apple's App Store, Samsung's store will provide an over-the-air way for mobile users to browse, purchase, download, and install applications.
Samsung has been nurturing its developer community with its Mobile Innovator Web site, which offers tools, technical content, and support.
"For Samsung Mobile Innovator members this represents a fantastic opportunity for them to get their applications to a large Samsung-user audience very quickly," said Phil Northam, global marketing manager at Samsung Mobile Innovator, in a statement.
Google (NSDQ: GOOG)'s Android already has its Android Market preinstalled on its handsets, Research In Motion (NSDQ: RIMM) will launch its Application Storefront in a few months, and Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) is widely expected to introduce its own app store offering.
